"Educators seeking to interpret Islam to non-Muslim audiences will find this an excellent resource. The story of the Prophet Muhammad is told in an engaging manner whilst keeping to the sacred spirit of the original texts. The festivals are explained in a simple and clear way, relating them to each aspect of the Prophet's life and teaching that they celebrate." BARONESS UDDIN, HOUSE OF LORDS "A sound and very helpful resource for teachers - it recognises the internal pluralism of both religious ideas and cultural expressions which characterises the Muslim communities in this country and globally." PROF. JORGEN NIELSEN, DEPT OF THEOLOGY, BIRMINGHAM UNIVERSITY "The stories are ripe for re-telling: I enjoyed their warmth and humour. They make the life and teaching of the Prophet Muhammad caring and accessible" CHRIS EAST, STORYTELLER AND ADIVSORY TEACHER, WALTHAM FOREST
